It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law

- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • new achievements .....total insult imo

    my eyes lit up when i saw there were new achievements...then i was slightly dissapointed when i saw it was only for the horde,skaar,and genesis battles (all 3 of which i have got everything i want from them and really had no more reason to get involved in them)....but hey for achievements and some rewards sure...

    so then i see them.......defeat them 25 times and get....5 skill points???

    i take it as an insult that we have waited so long for new achievements and rewards and this is what we get....im sure im over complaining but curious if anyone else felt the same way when they saw this

    If you look back at the threads from several days ago, I bet you could find some like-minded people.

      And I'm sure they would all be more than willing to get their kleenex out and have a nice whining session with some more spoiled crybabies again.

        Your about a week and dozens of posts late on this one. To summarize the discussions you apparently missed:

        #1 - If you don't like the rewards you are under no obligation to go after them.

        #2 - You are not owed rewards for achievements. Your sense of entitlement is causing you to feel wronged when in fact you are not being wronged.

        #3 - The devs goofed when they released the original batch of achievements. It's too late to fix those as the few they did change caused an explosion of nerd rage. As a result the new achievements are more in line with what they probably want.

        #4 - You may not appreciate skill points... however, many people do (especially those at really high levels who have to work a lot harder to get a level).

        #5 - Please refer to items #1 - 4.

          Basically what this type of post says, at least to me, is that players never really cared about additional achievements in the first place, they just wanted more options to give them piles of skill points and favor points without having to pay. At least next time maybe they'll be more honest and just say "give us more free stuff" instead of trying to hide behind the notion that the achievements are what they are really after.

            i want free stuff!

            i appreciate the new achievements, but stepping back in power the way they did was a bit disorienting. i would have rathered what i think a more balance effort/reward balance in them, but still, they are essentially just more options to grab some power.

            I do think that it was weird that they didnt put achievements for the other monsters. Why not one achievement (or more) for every monster?

            Also, yes, i would like free stuff. please devs, give me some free stuff

              Sounds like we have some people that like to kiss up to developers, too. Considering doing 100,000 damage to dragons and 500,000 damage to hydras would get you 25 favor points, how does it make sense to have people do one million damage to Skaar and Genesis, only to get five skill points? The whole point in achievements like this is that they're balanced. Most people would consider a game a joke if they gave you the best item in the game for killing the first goblin you see, and the worst item in the game for killing the final boss. Anyway, you must be new to forums. Anytime you post on an official forum with some kind of complaint, there will always be drones that come and act like there's something wrong with you, no matter how valid your complaint is. I certainly would take their advice though... stop playing the game, which forces it to lose people, which in turn makes it lose revenue, which in turn will cause it to shut down. They won't seem so "smart" then
              Peace is but a shadow of death.

                    You apparently need reference #3...

                    #3 - The devs goofed when they released the original batch of achievements. It's too late to fix those as the few they did change caused an explosion of nerd rage. As a result the new achievements are more in line with what they probably want.

                    If a game ever loses enough players that it needs to shut down then I would wager that it was likely very justified. However, I would also wager that anyone who quits Castle Age over something like this most isn't generating *any* revenue for the developer anyway. And when the game does eventually end... big deal... time for the next game and the next forum full of hyper-sensitive, unappreciated, unloved (and yet somehow still coming back for more every single day) gamers.

                      That's a cute little story, but I doubt even you believe it. If they had "goofed", then they could have fixed it before anyone took advantage of it. They seemed to have fixed up that raid problem from a week ago pretty quickly. How would you even know what they may or may not have meant to do? Either way, that's how the game is. I've seen many games were it was claimed that a character's name was mistranslated or something, and they just stick with it, because that's how it first came out and how people know it to be.

                      Popularity doesn't have much to do with how good a game is. I've played many games that I've loved, only for them to not get much support from others. Some terrible games get tons of support. I can guarantee you the precious "devs" aren't sitting there reading threads like this and saying to each other, "All right, they pushed another player away from our game! Awesome!". Every person that is playing this game generates something, even if it's indirectly. I just find it funny, because people like you, that complain about complainers, are definitely no better than them, no matter how much you may think so.
                      Peace is but a shadow of death.

                        Unfortunately, your assumptions fail you. I do not think I'm better than the complainers. I am simply tired of them. Now, what you seem to be missing is that I never told anyone that they shouldn't share their opinion (including yourself). I simply disagreed with them. You, for some reason, seem focused on criticizing individuals rather than their opinions. Oh well... it's never been difficult to play the role of devil's advocate and it seems to suit you well.

                          You can get more achievements by clicking my Pooh in my signature. Make sure to also click Invade or Duel as soon as they appear in your screen.

                          The Devs are not entitled to give you ANYTHING period. I would be fine even if they just gave us a JPG that said "Hey you did it! Way to go!".

                          If you don't like it don't do it. Simple as that.

                              An update comes out that you find disappointing and you take it as an insult? Get a clue. It's a facebook game. The devs don't "owe" you squat.
                              [CENTER] I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
